This is the 2nd Bostig conversion (last weeks) I’ve seen for sale in Colorado, gosh I wish I could have one in California. Silly rules. Anyhow, this 1983 VW Vanagon Westfalia camper popped up for sale on The Samba and craigslist yesterday with an asking price of $22k. It appears it’s been up for sale for a while, but maybe they’ve recently lowered the price and updated the ad. The seller claims they’ve invested over $25k in this rig in recent years. Both listings have tons of details, but here are some highlights. 21k miles on Bostig conversion, rebuilt trans with limited slip differential (awesome!), fuel tank overhaul, headlights upgraded, new clutch, new heater cores, new brakes, Go Westy 2″ lift springs, Bilstien and KYB shocks, propex propane heater (sweet!), fridge upgrades, new tent canvas, new skylight, sound dampening, jump seat! (can now seat 6!), Yakima wide body tabs, towers and bars, Fiamma hitch bike rack, new windshield, new propane tank and an alarm. My question is, why would you spend this kind of coin upgrading a van like this, but not address the dreaded seam rust? This is quite a fair price for this van, depending on the extent of the rust, which I would have addressed ASAP.
